Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel!

I've recently mentioned in my January favorites that one of my go-to lipsticks on the month was the Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Curviest Caramel. I was already a fan of the "regular" Chubby Sticks, and wanted to venture into trying the "Intense" version. Curviest Caramel is quite pigmented, so its title is quite appropriate for its performance. It's also resembles lipstick much more than the glossy finish that the regular Chubby Sticks give. It doesn't have glossy feel, but it's not quite matte either.

Like its less pigmented counterpart, the Chubby Stick Intense also has a twist bottom to ensure you do not waste any product. Another great thing about this product is that it is unscented. While Revlon's Kissable Balm stains might be a cheaper option, they do have a minty smell. I don't mind mint, but I always prefer my products to be unscented (except for Clarins... love that smell!)


Curviest Caramel is best described as a neutral rose in my opinion. I think it's sort of a chameleon shade depending on your lip color - if you have yellow tones, I believe this will be leaning towards brown, but if you have cool tones, this will look pinker. Since my tones are quite neutral, the color is a browny pink on me.


I really like this product. It's the perfect shade to go with any makeup. If I'm in a rush (which I always am) in the morning, I usually reach for this. It doesn't dry my lips out and it stays on for about 4 hours without needing reapplication. If you're not sure about all these glossy stick lipsticks around the market, and prefer lipsticks, this might be one worth giving a try!

  1. That's a beautiful color on you! I thought that it would have been more glossy than that, but I like it!

    1. Yeah so did I! I was really surprised at how "lipsticky" it felt. I like it though too!

  2. This looks gorgeous! I've been eyeing up the Chubby Intense sticks for a few months now and this color is definitely on my wish list. I've used and liked my sister's original chubby stick in Whole Lotta Honey, which looks like the less intense version of this shade. I agree with Crystal that I thought it would be a bit glossier, but I still think I'd really like it! xx

    1. I have Whole Lotta Honey as well and I agree - it's a less intense and more glossy version of this shade. I think Curviest Caramel has a tiny tint more of pink than Whole Lotta Honey too.

      Thanks for the comment Amelia!

  3. This is a great colour on you! It reminds me of a less dry-looking Tarte Matte Lipsurgence in Exposed. Must. Resist.

  5. The colour looks lovely on you! I haven't tried either of the Chubby Stick formulas, but the intense version sounds more like my kinda thing. Agree with The Procrastinator on your eyes, they're a gorgeous colour!
